Sports Direct Report That Newcastle Are Trying To Sign Wayne Rooney

9 years ago

It has just been reported that Newcastle United are trying to buy Wayne Rooney from Manchester United.

The exclusive comes from Mike Ashley’s very own Sports Direct  News website which was recently launched, claiming it would bring you breaking sports news headlines, transfers….

The story on sportsdirectnews says;

‘A source close to the negotiations told us, “Newcastle see Wayne as their ideal player. He is a strong centre-forward, would relate to the fans and would be a massive boost to the club’s brand name.

Low level conversations have already been held between Newcastle and Rooney’s agent, though the two clubs haven’t spoken directly yet.”

The story then goes on to say;

‘The Magpies have been interested in Rooney before….though the 18 year old snubbed a move to the Toon in favour of United.’ (Mike should tell them that is us!)

This is either a total publicity stunt, or a total publicity stunt, or it has a grain of truth.

All very bizarre and when they accidentally don’t mention the connection between Sports Direct, Mike Ashley, Newcastle United and ‘a source close to negotiations’, all very strange.
